After asking Chloé Thévenin to collaborate on the soundtrack of her show "Static Shot" (2020), Maud Le Pladec has called upon the producer and DJ again for "counting stars with you (musiques femmes)". A new ambitious, militant and feminist creation made for the 2021 season of Montpellier Danse. The dancer and choreographer, accompanied by six dancers, uses dance and song to explore the unspoken, the marginalisation and the representation of women musicians from the Middle Ages to the present day by summoning historical and contemporary figures such as Kassia of Constantinople, Barbara Strozzi, Giovanna Marini and Clara Schuman...  

“In concrete terms," says Chloé, "I composed the music by taking on board the songs of the dancers, drawing and reworking the voices from the repertoire of all the women composers who have been silenced by history. It’s a collective work, with Maud Le Pladec and Tom Pauwels (of the Ictus Ensemble), and we built on it as we rehearsed and developed the piece. The voices, their choices and reinterpretations were able to evolve into the music that I was composing.” Immersed in the creation and the work-in-progress nature of this show, Chloé has imagined a soundtrack based on song. She uses the performers’ scansions, whispers, performances and breath to graft unification and coherence to a show which calls on song as much as on music and dance. Like in "Spectrum Reload", a drawn out, ambient and incantatory opening piece, vibrant with vocal choirs and drones that gradually brings to light this female constellation which is referred to in the title of the piece. This introduction gives way to "Twice A Womxn", a distillation of mental and repetitive electronics, in the form of an "affirmation break" according to Chloé, which places the subject at the heart of the scene before the edgy "Dark Room", the physical climax plunging us into the whirl and sweat of the club, draws the curtain. With this new EP, released on her label Lumière Noire, Chloé unveils a more abstract and cerebral facet of her work with these three reworked tracks: committed and adventurous, but just as exciting.
